Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles presents the world premiere of Alan Alda's debut production as a playwright. Alda's new play, directed by award-winning Broadway director Daniel Sullivan, delves into the life and romance of one of the most brilliant female scientists in history. Famous for her groundbreaking research in radioactivity, Marie Curie was the only person ever to win two Nobel Prizes in multiple sciences, but not without a struggle. For all the answers that come to her in the lab, Curie is plagued with questions about how to realize the passion she has for both knowledge and love. Celebrated but then rejected by the popular press as both a woman and a scientist, Curie finds she must define her place in society - and history - on her own terms. This play deftly encompasses science, feminism, social progress and relationships, and stars Anna Gunn (Breaking Bad
) in the title role.
